Clinical Applications

Echocardiography 
Synapse Cardiovascular has everything you need to successfully complete any Echo exam. It offers a unique highly specialized engineering software package that solves even the most complicated calculations. It includes hundreds of possible measurements and calculations based on guidelines from the American Society of Echocardiography and the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Labs (ICAEL). Each pre-configured template features reporting profiles as well as clinical statements, measurements and calculations. Plus you can add your own comments for site-specific protocols and reporting requirements, embed images and configure your own defined macros for more efficient reporting. (Click to discover more)


Cardiac Cath/Inv PV 
Synapse Cardiovascular covers all bases when it comes to today’s Cath Lab. Developed using a cardiologist-directed design process, Synapse Cardiovascular optimizes workflow and enables rapid completion of detailed procedural reports. Synapse Cardiovascular increases productivity and accuracy with a diagram-driven graphical user interface, intuitive report-preparation functions and advanced image evaluation tools.

Nuclear Cardiology
Synapse Cardiovascular stops at nothing to provide you with the most advanced technologies to analyze your findings. That’s why we employ Corridor4DM, an innovative software application specially developed for the quantification and review of cardiac perfusion and function of nuclear cardiology SPECT studies. Corridor 4DM uses a foundation of algorithms developed at the University of Michigan to provide robust image displays including 3D and 2D polar maps and short axis images. (Click to discover more)


Vascular Ultrasound
Synapse Cardiovascular takes your Vascular Ultrasound studies to a higher level by offering a highly sophisticated engineering software package that solves even the most complicated calculations. It includes hundreds of possible measurements and calculations that you can modify, expand or group together to identically match your reports. Couple this with our completely customizable reporting capabilities, and your Vascular ultrasound exams become more advanced. Completely comprehensive, extraordinarily interactive and incredibly efficient. (Click to discover more)


ECG Management
The Synapse Cardiovascular ECG Module enables you to manage diagnostic test results from over 100 devices from 40 vendors in 15 diagnostic modalities. Your physicians access and edit studies via a standard web browser. With the Synapse Cardiovascular ECG module, creating finalized, signed ECGs, stress, Holter, and other diagnostic test result reports is quicker and easier than ever. (Click to discover more)

Technology

Web-based
Utilizes secure internet protocols for Client download and installation. Full viewing and reporting capabilities using the same user interface as when connected to the LAN, including DICOM images and SR data, as received from the imaging device with no additional compression, utilizing Remote Reading mode and local caching.


Advanced Clinical Application
Invia 4DM-SPECT for Nuclear cardiology quantification, Pie CAAS for Cath coronary and left ventricular analysis, Philips QLAB for Philips Ultrasound advanced analysis and quantification.


IT Standards
Windows operating platforms, Synapse Cardiovascular utilizes a standard Microsoft SQL Server relational database as well as HL7 and DICOM imaging and SR protocols. Validated to operate in a virtual operating environment.


Integration
Synapse Cardiovascular offers an extensive portfolio of DICOM, Hemodynamic, ECG, and HIS interfaces (HL7), including ADT, Orders, Results-out, and Billing. In addition, Synapse Cardiovascular has developed custom mechanisms to support the transfer of measurement data from legacy ultrasound systems. Synapse Cardiovascular is integrated with Synapse PACS for easy access to images and reports from either application, at any location.


Data Management
Administrative reporting to help facilities manage their departments effectively.


Virtualization
The healthcare market demands solutions with high performance, reliability and scalability. Compared to traditional server configurations, virtualization is a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The main factors are lower energy costs, less heat and thus savings in air conditioning and more efficient hardware utilization. The integration in an existing VMware environment and the use of available hardware resources (SAN,NAS,HSM) play a major role in this cost conscious market, using VMware developed Fujifilm solutions that address these key requirements. Fujifilm is an official member of the program's Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) and tests the Synapse products in the VMware headquarters in Palo Alto.

Benefits

Software only, Vendor and Hardware Neutral
Since it’s vendor-neutral , Synapse Cardiovascular integrates with the widest variety of device vendors in the market. And since it’s also hardware-neutral, it’ll fit in perfectly existing infrastructure.


Secure anytime, anywhere access
Synapse Cardiovascular is designed from the ground up for right to privacy compliance, with an architecture that protects against data loss by offering full logging, reporting and auditing. Web-based virtualization capabilities using both VMware and Citrix facilitate anytime, anywhere, secure access.


Automatic Clinical Report Summarization
Synapse Cardiovascular summarizes diagrams, schematics and measurement data to improve accuracy/reproducibility and reduce the number of mouse-clicks to create and finalize a clinical report.


Common Database AND User Interface
A common database and user interface across all modalities, Cath, Echo, Nuclear, Vascular US, etc., supports clinical and administrative efficiency and maximizes staff productivity.


Documentation across the Continuum of Care
Full structured reporting capability that’s customizable to fit the facility’s workflow, terminology, and standards of care.


Physician Reporting
Automatic summaries of editable coronary and vascular diagrams, wall-motion scoring and measurement data allow physicians to quickly and accurately document anatomical findings with minimal mouse clicks. Configurable narrative statements are automatically added to the final electronic report.
